This cute residence is run by Sig. Daniela and her secretary Daisy. They made us feel very comfortable. The accomodation is located at the 1st floor of a renaissance palace (there is a lift), just 2min away on foot from piazza San Lorenzo. Location is optimal, with a small supermarket just a couple of doors away and a pharmacy up the road.
We booked the baldacchino apartment which is roomy, nicely decorated and overlooks the street. The atmosphere is very romantic with a 4 poster bed, lots of candles and a lovely fresco on the ceiling. Even though described as an apartment, it is really a large room with a small sink, mini-fridge and 1 electric burner hob tucked away in a nice cupboard. There was also a small grill/oven (similar to the size of a small microwave) in which we were able to cook some small frozen snacks. The bathroom is not very spcious but does have a hydro-massage bath. There is also a comfy sofa and a large dining table.
The only slight problem we encountered was the noise which came from the outside on the first night mainly due to noisy passer-bys. Unfortunately our short 3 night visit to Florence coincided with the national culture week and the city was super full with tourists especially students. On the other 2 nights we slept alright and bought ear plugs just in case (which we didn't really use). Furthermore sig. Daniela let us know she was intending to install double glazed windows, which would render this apartment-suite flawless.
This is a good place to base yourself in Florence if you are looking for a spacious room with character at a very reasonable price. The very helpful sig. Daniela and Daisy render the experience even more special.
